Galaxy A7 (2017) with Bixby launched in South Korea


Last updated: July 12th, 2017 at 08:52 UTC+02:00

Samsung launched its new Galaxy A (2017) series earlier this year. The new series has since been released in several markets across the globe. Samsung has now launched a variant of the Galaxy A7 (2017) in its home country of South Korea.

One of South Korea’s largest mobile carriers, SK Telecom, will exclusively be selling the Galaxy A7 (2017). Customers in the country can pre-order it from the carrier starting today for 588,500 won or $510. It’s being offered in Black Sky, Gold Sand and Peach Cloud colors.

The Galaxy A7 (2017) features a 5.7-inch Full HD display with a Samsung Exynos 7880 processor under the hood coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.

The handset also features a 16-megapixel rear and 16-megapixel front camera. Additional features include IP68 certification for dust and water resistance, a fingerprint sensor as well as a 3,600mAh battery. It also has support for Samsung Pay.

This variant of the Galaxy A7 (2017) is slightly different from the one that has been out for a few months now. It comes with Bixby Home, a new service that Samsung launched earlier this year which surfaces relevant and contextual information in a card-based layout.

It doesn’t have Bixby proper so there’s no support for the assistant’s voice functionality. Consequently, this variant of the Galaxy A7 (2017) doesn’t have a separate hardware button for Bixby.

Customers in South Korea can place a pre-order for the Galaxy A7 (2017) starting today at T World Direct or at any of SK Telecom’s authorized agents across the country.

Could the Galaxy A7 (2017) be getting its Android Pie update soon?

It got Android 7.0 Nougat in 2017 and Android 8.0 Oreo in 2018. That should have been it but there’s something which […]
